Woman Wins World Air Guitar Championship

Woman Wins World Air Guitar Championship

26-year-old Aline Westphal from Hildesheim in Lower Saxony has won the 2011 Air Guitar World Championship in the annual competition in Oulu, Finland. The young German, also known as die Nichte des Teufels (“The Devil’s Niece”), is not just another pretty face. A university drama student, she’s writing a dissertation on “Air Guitar.”

Ms. Westphal is the first woman to win the world air guitar title in the global competition’s 16 year history. Rock on, Aline.
